Thank you both for the compliments! I'm getting there with this camera.

It works in kind of the inverse way from my GXR-M with 28mm lens ... There I tend to work manual focus and let the exposure be automated, here I tend to work auto focus and expose manually. It's the difference in control dynamics.

:-)

Oh yes, this entire set was processed and output to video entirely with Lightroom 4.1. I only jumped into Flare on one shot (the second coffee mug) because I wanted the border frame on that one.

Last Saturday evening at the Mexican Restaurant for my birthday ...


Leica X2
ISO 6400 @ f/4 @ 1/25 s


Note that I had to add grain in Lightroom to get the feel I wanted. It was actually a little too clean ... !

Happy belated birthday! Nice shot, Godfrey. The guy on the left doesn't seem too impressed with your X2

I think he was wondering what the gringo was going to do next... It was mighty crowded in the restaurant that night! :-)

Thanks!

I'm so pleased you started these posts. I probably would have never considered an X2 if I hadn't seen your post but it is a viable choice for someone not able to get an M9. That's what I like about this forum!

Tony, thank you. To me it's like a digital IIIF with a 35mm Summaron. It's about the same size and easily fits in your pocket. Flash just in case. The fixed 35mm has made me a better photographer. I highly recommend both the X1 and X2.

Jim, that is the first photo I have seen posted of the Giants postwin street thing. Excellent and thanks!

Tony, I have been using the X1 for my documentary as I can no way afford an M9. Can't even afford a used M8 with a decent lens. But i don't miss them yet and I am really learning the envelope of what I can obtain with this excellent camera!

I carry it in my pants pocket or my sport coat chest pocket or even in my jacket pocket everyday and I forget I even have it after a couple of minutes. And that is with the A&A half case on it with an Op-tech thumb cuff in lieu of a strap.

I am considering a used D-Lux 5 for the telephoto end of things because I have everything from Macro tto low-light levels working just fine. But, alas, I have no money for one so I continue using the X1 alongside the M3 and I love it.

I highly recommend these cameras.

My 1st snaps still learning, ISO was default at 3200 and didn't notice until a few shots were taken.

Very, very nice, Gil!

I really appreciate not only seeing the images out of the X2, but also seeing sites from another place that I will never be able to visit.

These are quite interesting in addition to being nice photos!

I'm loving the way this little camera renders colour and sharpness is just about what I want, not clinical.

The 1st set were Jpegs processed in LR 3.6 as my other mac does not have the LR4 version. The 2nd set were processed as DNG in LR4.2. Very minimal processing needed for both files. OOC is outstanding, raw converted to DNG is the way to go just in case heavy PP is needed. Most adjustments were in exposure. Still adjusting with no specific AE lock only function.

Does not use somebody X2 as a landscape camera? If yes, could show some photos?

I belong to a Saturday morning walking group and yesterday was our last morning walk of 2012. It was a chilly, damp start. Had the X2 with me, so I thought I'd make a portrait of the brave who started the walk ...


Others met up with us at the breakfast stop later. Slackers! ;-)

enjoy!
